UPDATE ON COVID VACCINES:
We are delighted to continue our roll-out of the Covid 19 vaccination programme. Great progress has been made and we thank our patients for the enthusiastic uptake of these vaccines to protect against Covid 19.
We continue to take advice from the HSE regarding which groups should be vaccinated in order, as per the Government priority list, which is available here: Covid 19 vaccination allocation
- We continue to receive some limited vaccination supply and will hold weekly vaccination clinics through the summer.
- If you are above the age of 16 and have still not received a Covid 19 vaccine or registered through the HSE portal please contact the surgery to register interest for this clinic. Slots will be allocated on an age related basis in compliance with our HSE vaccination guidelines. This service will be extended to younger patients as the supply of vaccine allows and information will be updated here when available.
- Please consider phoning at off peak times as the office remains very busy as we continue to provide routine health care for our community.
- Registration for all those aged above 16 to receive their Covid 19 Vaccine is now open through the HSE portal. The link to the website where you can register is here
Our practice manager and administration staff will be in touch with those due to attend the vaccine clinic to give them further information on how the process will work.
Please do not contact the surgery in relation to EU DIGITAL COVID CERIFICATIONS as this information is being provided to citizens directly from government only.
WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE CARE TO ALL DURING COVID
In the meantime we are offering in person appointments and we also continue to offer phone / video consultations to try to maintain footfall in the surgery as low as possible for the safety of everyone.
If you are due your smear test please book it as we continue to offer this service.
We still aim to keep all face to face consultations as brief as possible to reduce any risk of transmission of the newer, more highly contagious Covid strains.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19. As well as cough / fever and shortness of breath/ changes taste or smell the Delta strain has been noted to present as head cold / hayfever like symptoms, headache and sore throat. You must consult by phone initially if you or your child has any of these symptoms.
Once again thank you all for your understanding and support over the past 16 months.
